Healthy Geezer: Color blindness not black and white

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 by FRED CICETTI in Social News

Q. Do people who are color blind see everything in black and white?

"Color blindness" is the common term used to describe color vision deficiency. The term is misleading because total color blindness that turns the world into shades of gray is rare.

The most common type of color blindness makes it difficult for people to discriminate between red and green. The next most common form of the deficiency affects the perception of blues and yellows. Those with blue-yellow blindness almost always have red-green blindness, too.

Healthy Geezer: You don't want to ride 'charley horse'

Wednesday, August 12, 2015 by FRED CICETTI in Social News

Q. What exactly is a "charley horse" and why do I get them in my legs at night?

According to the American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms, the term "charley horse" was first used in the 1880s by baseball players to describe a muscle cramp. No one knows the true origin, but the dictionary states, "Among the more likely theories proposed is that it alludes to the name of either a horse or an afflicted ball player who limped like one of the elderly draft horses formerly employed to drag the infield."
